Supply List:

  • Sandpaper

#1: Flex Seal Your Folding Chairs.
Metal, folding chairs aren’t the prettiest things. They usually come in that ugly brown color or gray – not too much variety. Give your folding chairs some life with Flex Seal Colors. If you have any rust on your chairs, sand your chairs with sandpaper to remove the rust. Then clean your chairs and dry them off. Take them outside in your garage and spray them with Flex Seal in an even sweeping motion. Keep the Flex Seal nozzle 8 to 12 inches away from the surface. Flex Seal dries into a waterproof, airtight, rubber sealant that blocks out moisture and prevents rust.

[Flex Tip: Flex Seal comes in 12 vibrant colors – Black, White, Brite (Off White), Red, Blue, Green, Silver, Clear, Brown, Almond, Yellow, and Terra Cotta.]

#2: No More Ugly Doors.
A door can make or break a room. Give your old doors some new dimensions with painter’s tape and Flex Seal. Strip the door of any dirt, oil, or grease. Wipe it dry. Outline the area you want to Flex Seal with painter’s tape. Spray the door with Flex Seal. Let each coat dry for 24-48 hours. After the last coat dries, remove the painter’s tape. This technique is sure to make your door stand out. Color will give your door the illusion of being carved instead of completely flat.

#3: Hide Your Cable Box.
A cable box can stand up like a sore thumb. Hide it in a cute box. Just grab a sturdy decorative box from any craft store. Cut out a hole in the back of the box for the cable box chords. Make sure everything fits properly. Then take the empty box into a well-ventilated area. (Garage and outside work well.) If you’re in the garage, leave the door open. If you’re doing this project in the house, open your windows and get a fan running. Before you spray your cable box cover with Flex Seal, place it on a drop cloth.
